Today’s number: $237.3 million

Wednesday, Aug 6, 2014

* The Sunlight Foundation downloaded a new Election Money database and came up with some fun numbers

Of the $237.3 million raised in Illinois state and local races since Jan. 1, 2013, about 83 percent of that money was raised by donors with addresses in Illinois. […]

On this note, it’s interesting to see that seven percent of all the money raised so far in Illinois came from Washington D.C. The top two donors from that city—unsurprisingly—were the Republican Governors Association, (giving $4 million) and the Democratic Governors Association, (giving about $1.5 million). Another PAC, the “Democratic Governors Association-IL,” gave about $741,000. […]

Looking down at the city level, Chicago and Springfield were the biggest donors to campaigns—giving over $71 million and $24 million respectively. Winnetka, Ill., an affluent Chicago suburb of about 12,000 people, came in fourth place, just behind Washington D.C. Of the $11.1 million that came from Winnetka, $8.95 million came from just one donor—Bruce Rauner, the Republican candidate for governor.

17 donors have contributed at least a million dollars so far.

    I’ve been too busy to tool around with the new Election Money site but here’s my chief concern: amended disclosures. If you file an amended report to make a minor change does that data then show up twice? If so someone will have to write a script to control for it. If not that site could be a huge game changer in terms of the types of information that could be easily available. It could be a really big deal.

    Either way kudos to that team for taking this project on.
